Uzziel in Wikipedia
According to the Torah, Uzziel (Hebrew: עוּזִיאֵל, ʿŪzīʾēl,
meaning El is my strength or God is my strength) was the
father of Mishael, Elzaphan, and Zithri, and was a son of
Kohath and grandson of Levi, consequently being the brother
of Amram and uncle of Aaron, Miriam, and Moses. Uzziel is
portrayed in the text as the founder of the Uzzielite faction
of Levites; however, despite Uzziel supposedly being
Kohath's son, and Elzaphan's father, on some occasions the
Book of Chronicles treats the Uzzielites as being quite
distinct from the descendants of Kohath, and from those of
